The workspace is changing. Offices are getting smaller, with less space for desks and permanent places to work. So while many are turning to remote working and shared working spaces, there are many businesses who need employees in the building to perform their job roles or simply prefer the culture that grows up around desk-based workers.
A total of 36% of enterprises are seeing an increase in open workspaces (Wainhouse Research, 2015) , along with a 60% reduction of desk space per person in the last decade according to a survey from Tell Us About Your Workspace in 2014. `
The average square footage of office space has been reduced from 250 to 150 sq. ft/per user in the last 15 years. Conversely many people have been accumulating increasing numbers of devices. Phones, tablets, laptops, PCs, keyboards, mice and monitors are all jostling for room in an ever decreasing space.
While some might view this as a sign of the times and cost crunching, it could also be seen as a way to optimise and be more efficient.
So in addition to devices designed for mobility and remote working, the desktop PC is also getting a makeover. The HP Elite Slice is a brand new, unique device that fits into offices of all shapes and sizes. It’s modular, which means each user can combine layers to build their dream desktop.
It can easily fit into whatever format the modern office takes, with a layer that turns the HP Elite Slice into a speakerphone or multimedia player. With HP Audio Boost, bi-directional HP Noise Cancellation, three speakers and a dual-microphone array, it can turn any space into a meeting room and conference calling centre.
And since it runs Windows 10, The HP Elite Slice is familiar, easy to use and comes with all the security features you need to keep your data safe.
